  • Hand mixing: Mix all the ingredients with a wooden spoon until a ball is formed and the dough begins to separate from the bowl. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes and continue to mix quickly for another 2-3 minutes. Leave the dough to rise a little.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal parts and shape each into a ball. coat the balls with olive or vegetable oil and let stand for 15-20 minutes. Roll out the dough on a baking tray and then transfer it to an overturned baking tray sprinkled with cornmeal. Add sauce, cheese and whatever else you like. Bake at 550F (290C) for 7 minutes.


The dough can be frozen or put in the fridge and used for a period of 2-3 days. In this case, put the oiled balls in individual bags and store in the refrigerator or freezer.

Game chicken

Game chicken

This is my grandmother's recipe. She prepared venison in this way. Dida was a hunter, so in her pot you would often find a bunny (sniff! But it's tasty) or a pheasant. But as grandpa no longer goes hunting, and poultry is more affordable and cheaper, I very often make it with chicken and it’s just as delicious. It is very convenient if you prepare a meal for a lot of people because it is cooked in one pot and does not lose on quality by reheating, so it can be prepared in advance.
